Biggest challenge is two-fold: I tend to overbuy at the farmer’s market, which is easy enough to do with all the fresh vegetables and fruits being available right now, but I live alone. Doing something with all the produce before it goes bad is definitely challenging (and then finding room in my freezer for compost from all the leftover scrapped bits!).

There is something special about raw food that gets me really pumped and excited. But, no matter how much I love the rawesome diet that I possess…there is always one thing that consistently challenges me. Daily, I am reminded that I live in a world that doesn’t understand the way I eat. Not only do most people not understand, they also don’t seem to care about their own personal health, and to me, that is one of the most devastating things about our society. My hope is that one day, people will realize the importance of raw, organic, and natural ingredients and they will embrace them in the way I try to. National and worldwide health is always a challenge, but it’s one that can be solved by simply understanding what is and isn’t good for us! Thank you for being a part of the solution.

I have a real challenge finding really raw nuts and seeds. Markets are just starting to get up to speed with raw foods

Bernadette August 31, 2013 at 8:02 pm

My biggest challenge is not owning a dehydrator to make those amazing desserts on Rawmazing website.

Margaret August 31, 2013 at 8:03 pm

My biggest challenge? I forget to eat! I know I need to eat. I forget to eat. That is not good for a raw foodist – we need to eat as much as everyone else needs to eat. In my case, I will pack up food to eat, but I forget to eat it. For other people, if they forget to eat, they might eat wrong things when they feel hungry. I usually only remember to eat in the morning, or in the middle of the day. If I miss one of those, I might go until the next day, which is not good.
When I had a blender (it died), I was pretty good about making smoothies in the morning, which I could carry with me, and drink during the day. It would be nice to have a high-powered blender to make smoothies again.

My biggest challenge to a Raw Food diet ~ is just being new to the raw food way of eating and learning new ways to prepare! A NutriBullet would be a great addition! ;)

Maha August 31, 2013 at 8:22 pm

I follow a high raw diet. When I want to detox 100% raw is the diet I choose. My biggest challenge is cooking for others in my home who follow a different meal plan.

Jeannette August 31, 2013 at 8:26 pm

My biggest challenge in my new great adventure of that past 60 days in eating 100% raw is in getting the time to prepare interesting and different foods. Also there is so much to learn! Loving it!
This “Bullet” certainly would come in handy to say the least!

Chelsea // The Naked Fig August 31, 2013 at 8:32 pm

My biggest challenge is handling starch cravings. I think if I buy a dehydrator I might be able to remedy this by incorporating more savory foods. Sometimes I just want bread!

Shan August 31, 2013 at 8:38 pm

Humans are use to eatting soft food. Hard to chew on hard stuff all the time.

Lee August 31, 2013 at 8:39 pm

My biggest challenge is sticking to it when I get busy, it’s so easy just to go out and buy something from the shop rather than get up a bit earlier to prepare something raw for lunch.

LeShel August 31, 2013 at 8:42 pm

My biggest challenge is prepping food for my raw meals. I am such a last minute cook, and last minute doesn’t work well with raw! I need to do better with preparing foods ahead of time so I don’t end up eating salad ALL the time.

Trish August 31, 2013 at 8:49 pm

My biggest challenge with raw food is learning that I’m hypothyroid. Many of the raw foods that I’ve been eating lots of, especially in my morning smoothies, are goitrogens- spinach, broccoli, kale,strawberries, etc. These have a negative effect on hypothyroidism. In their raw state, I should be consuming very limited amounts. My challenge is finding acceptable substitutes.

Mary F R August 31, 2013 at 8:56 pm

Getting enough protein. I have chronic issues with swelling when I do not get the amount of protein I need. I spent 3 1/2 months in a raw food community in the Philippines last year and had swelling the majority of the time unless I was able to eat fresh young coconuts and sprouted Mung beans. Then and only then did I feel at the top of my game

Marilyn August 31, 2013 at 9:02 pm

My biggest challenge is I am dealing with a health challenge where I need to eat organic and it is hard to find a wide variety of vegetables. There are so many things in the different recipes that I can’t have.

Clare August 31, 2013 at 9:14 pm

Our biggest challenge, being 100% raw is the lack of spontenaity. As is often the case, each meal takes some time to prepare. Between soaking, germinating, sprouting, dehydrating, blending, buying of food stuffs, cleaning and storage of these foods, it’s a lot of work! Currently my husband shops at three different organic farmer’s markets each week. Finding space to put all of the food is outrageous. When it is cooler out, he puts it in the car and garage to keep cool overnight , when there is absolutely no more room in the fridge. If we are invited out to friends homes, we always have to pack our own food. It is like being on a perpetual, moving picnic.
Thanks for all of your super recipes,

Ola August 31, 2013 at 9:17 pm

My biggest challenge is a durable and affordable blender. I have been through 3 in less than 3 years with my family of 6, and right now we do not have one. We all enjoy the superb variety of ideas and recipes on the Rawmazing website and would love to have a new blender to try out more recipes.

Marty Ritzke August 31, 2013 at 9:21 pm

I am really impressed at all of the awesome recepies and valuable healthy information provides readers. I am really happy to be a part of your website. I plan on trying some of those great recepies. thank you all for sharing sucg fantastic info to all your readers..,

Monique Cyr August 31, 2013 at 9:40 pm

my biggest challenge is that I sometimes crave hot cooked food specially when the cool weather is upon us

Mary August 31, 2013 at 9:50 pm

My biggest challenge is finding the time to shop for and make all the delicious recipes I am finding. I don’t have a background in cooking so I find I need to study and learn a lot. But I am gradually getting faster and more skilled. It’s a challenge that has so many built in rewards and a sense of discovery and excitement -I can’t wait to get around the next bend in the road.

Raina August 31, 2013 at 9:51 pm

My biggest challenge with raw food is the expense. My grocery bill has doubled — but I’m much healthier and happier. :)

donna lee August 31, 2013 at 9:57 pm

I’a chef and cook food for a living,soooo I need to taste cooked food a lot,but for me I try and eat raw as much as possible

Nikki August 31, 2013 at 9:58 pm

Getting the kids (ages 2,3 and 5 years) to eat raw meals is a challenge! And to go along with that, finding the time to make two meals (one for them and one for me). We did just find a winner with your curry carrot salad: Everybody loved and devoured it! Thank you!!

Patinaware August 31, 2013 at 10:10 pm

I love eating raw, but my biggest challenge is coming up with new ways to use veggies!
The cost of everything here in Vermont is very high = challenge #2!

Julie August 31, 2013 at 10:22 pm

I’m just starting out. The biggest challenge for me is staying motivated. I look at the recipes and think of how great they taste and how much they will improve my health. Then I see my husband eating a cookie, or my co-workers go out for burgers, or I reach for the Cheetos… It seems increasingly important to surround myself with better food choices.

Velda August 31, 2013 at 10:32 pm

My biggest challenge with raw food, and I am 75% and many days 100% raw for 3 1/2 years now, is non-raw food people who have never heard about it and if they have, they sort of make fun or light of the subject.

Sparky August 31, 2013 at 10:33 pm

Our biggest challenge is not eating the whole vegan cheesecakes ourselves. We love to share but raw is so good sometimes it’s a challenge!

Penny August 31, 2013 at 11:01 pm

Biggest challenge is traveling and eating properly with so many limited choices on the road :)

RaKelle Lane August 31, 2013 at 11:09 pm

The most challenging part of eating raw for me is dinner! It’s easy for me to stay RAW all day, but in the evening I want to eat something that is super delish! Just eating salads and cut up veggies for dinner is too boring! So I’m always trying to find something new to make, but am limited because all I have is a blender. This is the first time I’ve ever left a comment, so I also want to say thank you so much for all of your yummy inspiring emails! I hope that one day, I’m as good as you are at making RAW dishes!! ;)

Peggy August 31, 2013 at 11:24 pm

My biggest challenge would be traveling. Having a good compact blender to take with me to make decent green smoothies!

Raquel August 31, 2013 at 11:51 pm

My biggest challenge is to get my family and my self used to eat more raw food!!!!
since I grew up loving eating and learning to cook Mexican food!!!
so the transition is tough.

Raquel August 31, 2013 at 11:52 pm

S. Braun August 31, 2013 at 11:56 pm

My biggest challenge has been getting my family on board with the raw food lifestyle.

Cindy September 1, 2013 at 12:02 am

Finding non-GMO fruits and vegetables.

Jeanine September 1, 2013 at 12:09 am

By biggest challenge in eating raw is that I crave bad food and don’t feel like eating the raw I can do it half day but kater I don’t feel satisfied by just eating raw. I’m new at this and maybe just need to get used to it.

Melissa September 1, 2013 at 12:21 am

Biggest challenge is power. We are off-grid and cannot use a lot of power-hungry appliances like the food processor, dehydrator, and VitaMix. I relied on those on-grid…a lot… but now I need manual tools/appliances that are efficient and use little to no power for chopping, food processing, high-speed blending, and dehydrating.

Sallee September 1, 2013 at 12:29 am

My biggest challenge with eating raw is the way that everyone else eats. Food is such a social thing and sometimes I feel like an outcast because I have made a commitment to healthy eating choices, and everyone else at the potluck or birthday party or whatever it is, hasn’t.

Becci September 1, 2013 at 12:40 am

My biggest challenge would be finding the time to learn new recipes and sometimes the cost involved (nuts are so expensive here in Australia ) i have 2 teenagers and they eat sooooo much :-) they love the raw food we already eat in our diet and are open to trying more.

Nathan September 1, 2013 at 12:47 am

My biggest challenge is the time to prepare raw food and finding raw food while traveling.

Deb Favero September 1, 2013 at 12:48 am

Actually modifying my diet to a high percentage raw is the most challenging. Dinner is difficult because my husband is predisposed to reject the food. His complaint? “Makes my jaws hurt.” This from a frequent steak eater!

Choosing by random number generator is so smart, and impartial. Just one more reason to love your blog. Of course your amazing recipes are the true draw.

Marie September 1, 2013 at 1:03 am

Biggest challenge is eating out. So often my choice is stale iceberg lettuce and unripe tomatoes.

Marianne McGee September 1, 2013 at 1:12 am

My biggest challenge is planning ahead. I tend to wait until I’m really, really hungry, and then I resort to grabbing anything that might be ready to eat NOW, rather than making something raw from scratch.

Zoe September 1, 2013 at 1:49 am

My biggest challenge is being organised enough to always have something ready to go for those times when you come home tired and hungry; especially in winter when you’re not always in the mood for a quick smoothie!! Eating out is becoming much easier here with more raw food cafes opening up, and we have a wonderful selection of wholefood stores and farmers markets to choose from. With summer on its way we’re pretty lucky here in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Magdalena September 1, 2013 at 1:50 am

Hi there,

my biggest challenge is staying almost RAW in my daily schedule. Going to work, meetings, not always having the time to shop or plan adequately to grab at least two I’ll be hungry in the evening. Being in town and not finding fruits to go or ordering an all-vegan-salad is the challenge on the road. Not having the time to juice in the morning, because juises and smoothies would be a super all day meal :)

Ashlea Minicozzi September 1, 2013 at 2:00 am

My biggest challenge is getting carried away and not following recipes.

Isabelle Gardiner September 1, 2013 at 2:00 am

I love being raw but constanly struggle with the cost of fresh food, nuts, seeds and superfoods.
The UK seems totally geared up for a cheapy, junk food lifestyle (lots of 4 choc bars for a £1) but no decent offers on healthy living:((( Do the people in charge not want us to get healthy???
Good luck everyone!!!!

pnkrLz September 1, 2013 at 2:08 am

I have just got into the raw lifestyle and my biggest challenge is “non-raw” society which makes things harder.

Thank you!

Tisha September 1, 2013 at 2:14 am

My biggest challenges of eating raw is I’m the only one in a household eating raw, so it’s hard to make 2 meals and I tend to overbuy thinking I will get to juice or make a smoothie everyday and I don’t get to and it goes bad. :(

Kammie @ Sensual Appeal September 1, 2013 at 2:32 am

My biggest challenge with raw food is that it goes bad quickly. I live one and tend to buy too much at a time and alt of it goes to waste :(

Ella Harris September 1, 2013 at 3:34 am

Having my family accept my way of eating, I try to show them I’m nourishing my body and getting enough nutrtion but they believe I always need (meat cheese etc) The rest is just one big delcious adventure
